There are the times when you’re holding it so tightly together.
Your schedule is packed but you’re making it work. Your house is immaculate. You have the work-life balance thing DOWN.
Yet, somehow, lurking under the surface is stress. Someone says something to you and you get snappy. An annoying co-worker brings you this close to your edge.
We have all been there.
Take a seat and change nothing.
Notice the scream in your breath.
Notice the stress in your breath.
Breathe with a chaotic energy. Don’t try to be perfect. Don’t try to smooth it out. Let it be as jagged as it wants to be.
After 5-10 minutes, check in on yourself. Maybe by taking some time in honest conscious reflection, you’ll feel better.
Maybe that urge to scream is still there. So you know what? Scream. Scream it out.
Indian mystic Osho wrote, “Whatsoever you want to express, express. But not to someone; just in a vacuum.” Let your body and your mind express as it wants to. Don’t repress for a moment longer.
After you’ve paid sufficient tribute to your frustration, see if any burden has been lifted.
Then get on with that imperfect day.
